With profound insight and a healthy dose of levity, Complaints of a Dutiful Daughter chronicles the various stages of a mother’s Alzheimer’s Disease and the evolution of a daughter’s response to the illness. While at first she fights against her mother’s forgetfulness and obsessive behavior, this dutiful daughter must realize that the changes are incurable and start down the hard road of acceptance.
Internationally acclaimed, Complaints of a Dutiful Daughter is a Peabody award-winner, screened at the Sundance Film Festival and was also nominated for an Academy Award. Neither depressing nor medical, it is ultimately a life-affirming exploration of family relations, aging, change, and the meaning of memory and love.
